In 2019, we know that diamonds are everybody’s best friend, and that’s why we love these Tateossian Diamond Dust Cufflinks. A striking metal-plated circle encloses cuts of black diamonds, making these some of the coolest cuffs around. They’re not overly flashy, but they’re effortlessly cool (and exclusively available at Selfridges, so you won’t find them anywhere else). The Tateossian Diamond Dust Cufflinks are available from Selfridges for £209.00 Gilded Book Ends What do you get a stylish book lover? Gilded crystal bookends of course. And Harrods is the place to find them. These gilded bookends from Aerin are dipped in 18-karat gold. The jagged crystal faces and smooth golden finish are beautiful additions to any apartment and will make grabbing a book a luxurious experience. The Aerin Gilded Crystal Bookends are available from Harrods for £839.00 Personalised Champagne This beautiful gift comes with a bottle of Veuve Clicquot brut Champagne, and a customisable keepsake tin. What makes this so special is its location-specific detail. Instead of adding someone’s name or a message, you include a place name (it can be a country, city, village or place name), and they will also include the distance from your destination to Reims, home of the Champagne. If you’d rather write a note, opt for a bottle of Veuve Clicquot’s famous Rosé Champagne with a presentation case for your message. The Veuve Clicqout Brut Champagne Personalisation Tin is available from Selfridges for £59.00 A Velvet Bag The holidays are all about comfort and indulgence, and nothing screams both like a sleek Saint Laurent bag made of plush velvet. Anyone would be thrilled to find a Loulou Matelassé Toy Bag under the tree, especially when it comes wrapped up in the iconic Harrods bag! This is the perfect accessory to stay chic (and cosy) all winter long. The Saint Laurent Velvet Loulou Matelassé Toy Bag is available from Harrods for £815.00 A Life-Changing Hair Dryer Yes, we said life-changing, because that’s exactly what the DYSON Airwrap is. The brand famed for their vacuums has now revolutionised hair care with this stunning styler. Using the Coanda effect, it attracts your hair to the barrel and wraps it for you, so you’ll never be caught in an awkward tangle again. This kit allows you to create straight or curled hairstyles, while protecting your hair with its advanced temperature technology, which keeps the temperature below 150°C. The DYSON Airwrap styler Smooth + Control is available from Selfridges for £399.99 A Festive Hamper Be your own Santa Claus this year and deliver a hamper of festive cheer with the generous St James hamper by Harrods. This beautiful basket comes with all the holiday classics, like a Christmas cake, mince pies, chocolates, jams, biscuits and a selection of loose teas and coffees. It’s your holiday entertainment life saver, because you’ll always have something on hand to share with guests (or not, we won’t put you on the naughty list for keeping it to yourself!)
